Description

Music by Charles H. Gabriel.  Arranged for 3 to 7 octave handbell choir, optional 3 to 5 otaves of handchimes and optional flute.  Level 3+.  Flute part is included.  Brian Childer’s evocative arrangement of this beloved tune is a true delight!  An opening interplay between bells and the optional flute depicts the titular bird before giving way to the melody on chimes.  Continued counterpoint with the flute and bells continues through various moods, styles, and techniques through to the serene ending.  This arrangement is not to be missed!
